Now the *** "opt out" page for Family Tree Now won't "find the server" or whatever it needs to do to opt me out of posting all the information about me. I am livid! In this day and age when we have child predators all around us, thieves, murderers, etc., how can any...

Same problem here, except there's just no opt out button at all, and clicking the opt out page link just goes around in a circle.

Familytreenow Website Review

Baffles my mind how this website is legal! Personally I've had some kid harass and threatened me so when I discovered this disturbing website the first thing I felt was chilling fear that he could find not only my address but also my relatives address so quickly! How irresponsible of this website!!! I'm furious

Tried to opt out. Followed directions. Kept taking me to a paid research page.found myself but no details. If I wanted more info on myself I would have to pay. No way to opt out. Very pissed.

Familytreenow - Website Review

Companies like this endanger Domestic violence victims, rape victims, other crime victims, witnesses etc. Plus they make identity theft a heck of alot easier for criminals. No information like this should be available to ANYONE!! I never provided or allowed the use of private information to anyone!!

This is infuriating! Most of our info is out there whether we like it or not, but this gives it all, unpaid.

There were relatives listed I don't even know and associates. Aside from alot of inaccurate information, it is a violation of privacy and a safety concern. To opt out, find your info and copy the entire URL (make sure you get it all). Go to Contact Us link at bottom of page and click on it, filling in the info and pasting the URL.

Be sure to click that you are not a robot (LOL). Then click submit.

You will get a confirmation. I just hope all this attention to this site isn't a bigger scam to get your email.

#1269031

Absolutely AGREE!!!!! I can't believe OUR physical address & a photo of our home is on this site!

OPT OUT immediately!

Thanks for asking for our opinions first!

#1268855

All the "people" (no doubt employees) saying it's all already out there - wrong. At least not in a free site with one click and get someone's life history - addresses past and present, relatives, associates.

It is a stalker and ID theft dream site. There are places online, but it requires a lot more effort than this one-stop invasion of privacy.

@PissedConsumer1268855

I saw this on law enforcement group. This info should NO be so easily available!

As previously stated the opt out did not work so I emailed them.

We shall see what happens. I've posted on fb to make more people aware

Familytreenow - Review in Media category

It's all public record... This is the most basic of databases... Just some names you're commonly associated with and any address you've registered anywhere... Just public record. I don't see any personal info... They're not giving out phone numbers and bank account info, or social security numbers... Your birthday is most likely publicly posted on facebook. People sign up for websites and happily put all their personal info into databases worldwide, but then wanna cry when that same info is pushed into one place at the same time. Lol go sit down and eat a cracker, you need much more info than this to be dangerous.

I looked my self up on familytreenow and no big deal. The information comes from your credit report.

I know this as it also contains an error made on a credit report years ago and ties my name in with another family.

#1269960

You are a ***.

#1269356

Somehow they have an address I just moved into weeks ago in there already. I haven't changed it or given it out to anyone.

If this is only public information I'm baffled at how they got my address. The only places I've put it out there are utilities which I just turned on last week.

#1269202

Shut up ***. not everybody uses ZOGbook.

#1269133

Actually I don't know what changed with the website but just two days ago when I looked people up it listed their phone numbers. It had all my previous addresses and all my phone numbers including my current one. I don't give out this information so some random listing house shouldn't.

#1269109

And you say that because you know or you are stating your opinion as fact? Because I worked in fraud prevention for a decade and, no, they don't have the right to post every kind of records.

I suspect some of the information on my profile came from my credit report and, if so, that's absolutely illegal.

And reckless. Maybe you'll feel differently if you have your identity stolen.

#1269034

Are you kidding me? Need more information to be dangerous?

Your not very bright are you? Every listed address you have lived, plus the name of family members. I take it you probably work in a cubicle where the most dangerous thing that can happen to you is a paper cut.

Some people dont work in such a soft and cozy environment and this is dangerous "FREE" information.

I have tried several times to opt out of FTN, but the "I am not a robot" box on the opt out page won't toggle even after three times restarting the program. I believe it has been removed to keep people from opting out. I have tried to contact FTN to check it out, but...

It's All Legal

Come on, people. Family Tree Now only posts what information is already out there on the internet. This is legal information commonly posted on other web sites. This is our new society. Everything you see is readily available online thru other sources. Family Tree Now collects those sources and posts the gathered info. In this day and age, you have to live "off the grid" to avoid having your name, address, phone number and age posted online. This is not an invasion of privacy; it is the new reality of an open society. It's all legal.

Are you a dumb ***? We never gave our information to them for them to use.

This is invasion of privacy! Get with it

#1268529

Nice for the anonymous person to say that ***!

Live in the society and post your information for those pissed off to see. We'd like to personally express out opinions.

Family Tree Now--interesting and useful

Found the site informative. All these snowflake complainers need to realize the info they are complaining about FTN posting can be found over the Internet doing general searches. Seriously, if you don't want anyone to know anything about you, don't buy anything, return anything, drive, vote, do banking, have a credit card, no phone, no newspaper subscription. And add avoiding going to the doctor because they all have to input your medical history into a database. I have found names, phone numbers, family members, obituaries, criminal records, all public and searchable. You would have to live like a fur trapper in the 1700's to remain completely private in today's world.

Medical history is protected under HIPAA so I don't know what you're talking about when you say people should avoid going to the doctor. If you access someone's medical history or of this site offers that information out then you and this site has committed a serious crime and can face jail time plus anywhere between $50,000 to $1.5 Million for each offense committed.

In other words each search you perform or each bit of info this site gives someone is one offense. So hopefully you have not unlawfully obtained medical records.
